"Some People Just Don't Belong"- Caddyshack
It's just like the Farm Security Administration's photography project except it isn't.
I don't want to offend any painters here, but I would rather have been bored with "the tightening down of bolts" than to witness the paint drying.
Geez, that felt awfully anti-climactic. I expected a power surge and a carnival atmosphere. Loved the chicken though.
The tops of the trees are moving. Needs higher poles. And now I see if a bird gets anywhere near that thing it's dead.
lol truth to tell, I clicked to the end. This is for hard-core vicarious off-gridders.
Please, Lord, never ever ever let me rely on this putz for my survival. Off the grid? Bullshit.
How do you mean, Ari?
deborah....I mean all that alleged effort for 600 watts? I mean all that obviously acquired material and tools for some off the grid. Please. This guy has never spent even a week in any wilderness where there is no grid. The whole concept is oxymoronic.Reminds me of the recently promoted cable television prepper dude with the "invisable shelter" (mirrors) in the woods. Say hey, at least 1.5 inches off the grid. Whoa!
I don't doubt he's living off-grid, but he's also marketing it, what with ads and hits. And people are sending him care packages lol. Oh, the good life...
"Off the Grid" obviously means different things to different people.This huckster is so far off the grid he has Internet access with video capability. That's like living in Queens and hi-jacking your neighbor's electrical feed and calling it off the grid.
Okay, to me it means not being hooked up to the electric company :)
No job is complete that doesn't draw blood.
I ran my sump pump for four hours off a small solar panel a couple of days ago, when the electric company went off grid.All it takes is a solar panel, a MPPT tracking controller, a large 12v battery and a sine-wave interver.And a manual pump if it's night.

Hard to peruse the Interwebs and post videos, however....but you could get a crank up generator I suppose...give you deltoids like superman whot. Actually solar panels where they actually see the sun do make some sense, far more than some dinky wind turbine set up in the woods....maybe 10 minutes from the nearest Lowe's or Home Depot.
rh:"when the electric company went off grid."lolAri, I won't link, but the guy is getting freaky. Yesterday's post he was saying people were sending death threats. O brave new social media world.
I feel awful too on this, hope you find some better opportunity that will come.
